I want to run a firewall appliance in my datacenter. I need to support remote client VPN and site-site VPNs. I'd like to use something graphical. When I try the Ubuntu Desktop GUI, I get "Loading extension GLX" and it just sits there. Questions: If I can't run StartX, can I run a GUI based firewall? If not, how can I get startx to work?
I would also accept words of encouragement just to go with IPTables or other command line solutions.
